National Christian Play Festival strives to:

  • Identify, nurture, celebrate, and honor the best Christian playwrights in the United States of America
  • Encourage the creation of truly captivating Christian plays that are competitive with Broadway while remaining true to Biblical principles
  • Provide Christian playwrights with rigorous, professional play development opportunities — the ability to workshop, revise, and refine their plays through private and public staged readings with actors and dramaturgical support
  • Provide playwriting training that equips Christian playwrights with the skills to write widely appealing works viable for production in professional theaters across the country without compromising Biblical principles
  • Be the number one resource for churches and Christian schools — primarily high schools and universities — looking to produce high quality, relatable, and enjoyable Christian plays that challenge actors and provide bingeworthy entertainment for audiences
